Garnet color. Aromas of dried dates, leather, minestrone, and menthol lozenge with a silky, vibrant, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a warming, stimulating, breezy chocolate, candied orange peel, roasted walnut, and banana finish with light oak flavor. A juicy port-style wine to sip with cheese.

Domestic Port-Style Wine

Serve in a Port Wine Glass
Domestic Port-Style Wines are those made in the style of Portuguese Ports wines but grown and vinified in the United States. Wines made in this style are typically fortified with brandy or distilled grape spirits which causes fermentation to stop and also increases alcohol. Flavors are typically sweetfruity, nutty, and have a stronger alcohol presence than standard table wines. The best examples are highly comparable to true Ports.
